This six-week program provides one-on-one attention within a group setting. It begins with an assessment of your current balance and risk of falling.

Welcome to the San Mateo County Fall Prevention Task Force website.
The mission of the San Mateo Fall Prevention Task Force is to decrease falls among community dwelling older adults through advocacy, resource development and education. We would like to acknowledge the generous support from our community organizations in funding our various activities in 2012-2013:
FamilyLink is a simple “One Touch” solution which connects generations while providing peace of mind. No more worrying! Unobtrusive activity monitoring from the person needing care to the Care Partner. Maintains independence, good for falls management, quality of life, dignity and respect while aging in place or other needs. Easy to use personal messaging and photo/video sharing. The Care Partner has easy website access and email alerts from the FamilyLink device. This is a Caregiving partner device with Facebook, CNN, Google & more.
FamilyLink is multi-purpose designed specifically to help people needing care to stay connected with their loved ones. News, weather and radio too! It is all of the advantages of a computer without the hassle-with 1-touch, it’s FamilyLink. Laura Guluzzy, Gerontologist, Community Outreach Director.
